Ladies and Gents, I am finally back after a long hiatus. I am starting a new series within this blog, where I will be reviewing various horror/scifi books. First up, The Electric Series by Casey Harvell.

This series focuses on a group of friends, most importantly a young girl named Kat, who is thrown into an apocalypse. The apocalypse is caused by nanobot technology gone horribly wrong. Saving the world falls into Kats hands, as her abilities with being electrically charged, seem to be the only thing that stops the nanobots.
I have to stay I really loved this series. I finished it within a week, and couldn't put it down. The characters are written in a way where you can relate to them, and you feel a connection. Kat for instance, just a normal girl who's starting to come into her own as a teenager. Trying to get through school, participating in a band with her bestfriend, dealing with her first love, dealing with the mean girls. The character development just made the book so much more enjoyable and you really wanted to know what would happen to them. Spoiler alert, there's even a baby bear. Probably my favorite character. The nanobot apocalypse itself is distressing within this book. You can see it unfolding, and you can feel both hopeless and hopeful as the series continues on. It's quite disturbing in some areas when you hear what the nanobots have done to some humans. Disturbing in a way that will freak you out, but not something that turns you away. I really loved how Casey chose to use nanobot technology as the end of the world, as opposed to biological warfare. It makes this series that much more of an 'edge of your seat' read, because you can see this happening. Honestly, there aren't many books that I pick up and can't put down. This series goes into the short list of books that I couldn't put down. It brought out so many emotions, which is rare these days in books. I even teared up quite a bit when reading. Please go pick up the series on amazon. You won't be disappointed. It has a little something for everyone. 5 out of 5 stars.
